St. George Classes

Excellence And Understanding

Educate Enlighten Edify

The transformative learning process at Ascent Advantage Academy is designed to help our students grow in faith, in character, in understanding, and in knowledge. We personalize our curriculum to your child’s needs.

 

Our program is based on eternal principles found in the Scriptures, on modern research as to how the brain works, on the wisdom of Prophets and Founders, and on our own experience.

 

Our tutors work with our students individually, as well as in classes, to assure understanding and subject mastery.

EXPERIENCE COMBINED WITH AN INNOVATIVE AND PROVEN PROGRAM

A LOVING ACCEPTING ATMOSPHERE WHERE KIDS CAN RELAX AND EXCEL

TEACHING AND LEARNING BY THE SPIRIT

A TYPICAL DAY – A PROVEN FORMULA

Experience Proves It

○ We begin our days with a Devotional consisting of a Hymn, and a Prayer. The music and the
prayer help bring the Spirit into the classroom, and the music also helps to open our brains for
learning.

○ We continue with 5 minutes of Brain Integrating Exercises which have been scientifically
proven to further ready and optimize the brain for learning.

○ After the Devotional & Exercises, we continue with 25 minute classes.

These include:

▪ A drink of water to assure adequate hydration for brain performance;

▪ Recording the day’s assignment in our Assignment Notebook;

▪ A Review of previous work and

▪ A 20 minute lesson covering new material.

Note (1): We learned through studies that students recall only the first and last 10-12
minutes of a class period. Also, recent brain research has confirmed that the brain learns in
20 minute increments. Thus, we shortened our class times to 25 minutes.

Note (2): There is also a 5 minute break between classes in order that the students may get
up and move around. Studies have shown that those who move periodically do far better
academically and physically than those who stay seated for long periods. Class times are 10
minutes after the hour to 35 minutes after the hour and 20 minutes to the hour to 5 minutes
after the hour. The 5 minute break also allows us to connect with students who are joining a
LIVE class online.
